the hard thing to believe is that this still goes on. This is a shame that these women are not more protected. It is even being done with the governments knowledge....someone needs to stop this!!! Based on a true story.

Very good movie. Based on a true story, makes you wonder how this can go on in the real world. So sad.

Lauren Adrian: It isn't free trade! It's slave trade! It's a goddamn scam, and everybody is making too much money to give a shit about these women!
